After 150 Years, the Greatest
Crime in U.S. History Is Solved!

Since 1865, the U.S. government and leading historians have declared the assassination of Abraham Lincoln a mystery.  Without evidence or credible witnesses they have alleged that the Confederacy was behind the killer, John Wilkes Booth, even though every accused Confederate mastermind (Davis, Johnson, Surratt) has been found not guilty.  It has never been determined who Booth's masters were, nor their motive.

Finally, the men behind Booth can be known, along with their reason for attempting to eliminate three Presidents and a U.S. Secretary of State.

This astonishing book reveals:

The architects of Lincoln's assassination
How the Civil War was extended nearly a year in order to achieve a political goal
Multiple Union agents within Booth's gang
How the crime was covered up and the guilty parties protected
Damning evidence other historians have overlooked or chosen to ignore.
Rather than rephrasing old theories and the prevailing conjecture, Don Thomas uses the letters, telegrams and memoirs of the period's power brokers to illuminate the political climate of Washington D.C. during the last years of the Civil War. With a logical, forensic treatment of evidence, testimonies and correspondence, the author debunks the myths and lies, and identifies the one and only faction that ever had a motive, the means and the opportunity to kill President Lincoln and Secretary of State Seward on the night of April 14, 1865.
     Most astonishing of all is that dozens of documents and artifacts proving Lincoln's murder was an inside job have not been hidden, they simply have not been highlighted by historians.  In 1977, a document was discovered that removes all doubt that Booth was the unwitting pawn of the U.S. War Department, doing the bidding of a faction within Lincoln's own party.
